Must do!

For anyone who loves food and learning about an area, this is a tour you must do. Not only was it informativie about the foods and business owners, but also about the history of the area. In an era of big box and discount stores, it is terrific to see small businesses flourish. Hats off to them and to the developer(s) who had the vision.

After doing the Soho & Greenich Village tour last visit we decided to do the Chelsea Markets tour.

It was so interesting to visit all the stores & taste their delicious food. Tour guide was very informative & fun.

Definately recommend to everyone but don't have any breakfast so you can taste everything.

The tour offered a great sampling of the foods available inside the market and in the environs. Would have enjoyed more about the historical development and importance of the market but this in no way detracts from the enjoyability of the tour.

We highly recommend this tour,

Great Tour--Excellent Guide

I travel to NY frequently and sometimes have to stay over the weekend due to the weather. This tour was a delight and great use of time! The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and had lots of historical additions as well as a few pictures. She knew all the owners of every place we went and they all appeared glad to see her. Until the tour, I didn't realize the connection the building had with the Food Network.

my daughter and I took this tour as a way to see this part of the city. It was very informative and enjoyable. we had a great group of people from everywhere and Cindy was a fantastic guide. we learned a lot about the history of the area as well as the Chelsea Market itself. The food was wonderful as well. Great chance to try old favorites as well as new things.

A delightful and delicious experience!

The tour started with food and ended with a wonderful penthouse view of Chelsea. Both my wife and I were delighted with the food, tour guide, tour comapanions and overall experience. We hightly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see a unique part of NYC. The food was delicisous and varied. Since we both have sweet tooths we enjoyed the cookies, jam etc as well as the other appetisers. The tour kept our interest, it balanced eating with history and touring and sitting with walking.

We both recommend it for anyone though we don't think children under 15 would enjoy it.

Our tour guide was Kurt Upton and he was absolutely hilarious. He is a stand-up comic at night and does tours during the day. What a great combination--interesting stories about the area and great food from a variety of upscale fooderies. This is the third food tour I have done and while all were very good, this one was especially great because of Kurt. He really made the tour an unforgettable experience. I hope you are as lucky as we were to have such a great tour guide.

My husband and I went on the tour on one of the coldest weekends. It was great! Our guide was very informative and the food was outstanding. I knew my sister would love it so I took her for her Bday the next week, one of the warmest we've had in months. She loved it even more than I. Suggestion: there are smaller crowds at the market on cold days so if you don't care pick the cold day for your tour. Just go, you'll love it. Hi to guides Darrel and Cindy who were fantastic!
